The first week of Queen Margrethe’s annual summer cruises aboard the Royal Yacht Dannebrog continued yesterday and today in Mariagerfjord. After arriving in Hobro harbour yesterday, the queen visited an art exhibition, community activities and cultural centre, a robotics company and Maritime Cultural Center before returning to the harbour in time for choral concert performed by 600 schoolchildren. For these events, Queen Margrethe repeated her pink straw brimless bumper hat with domed crown and trio of white diagonal stripes across the front of the brim.
Today, Queen Margrethe travelled upriver to Mariager Harbor by royal barge where she visited Scandinavia’s largest plastics recycling facility, viewed more than 400 varieties of roses at Mariager Rose Garden, listened to an organ concert at Mariager Church and saw excavations at the Bronze age era burial mound Hohøj. For these events, the Danish queen repeated her vibrant pink straw hat with navy floral hatband and small white flowers at the side.

We often see Queen Margrethe in nautical navy or red for these summer cruise outings and the pink is a fresh and pretty departure. That’s my nice way of saying that I really, REALLY hope we see some new hats come into circulation for Queen Margrethe. The old ones are mighty familiar.
